What's the best way to open the top of the wash machine?
Answer Hello Steve. There are two clips under the top panel corners, that will need to be pressed in, with a flat blade, to raise the top of the washer. Hope this helps.
Look to me the motor cannot just sit with no tension being applied to the belt, I worked on Cars and fixed things all my life it does not make sense, especially when the loads that were done before for years were fine. Something changed, the motor is feeling free- wheeling no resistance what so ever, move the motor and it sits with no tension. Which spring is broken? Thanks
Answer Hello John. The motor only uses one spring and that is the motor spring 22004376. The motor floats on the plate and changes positions between agitate and spin. If the unit is not spinning, you will want to check the thrust bearing 12002213. You will need to turn this by hand and see if the unit releases the brake assembly and turns the tub properly. If not, you will need to replace the thrust bearing kit. If it works properly, make sure the motor spring is hooked to the motor and the plate, and the motor is moving freely and properly. Hope this helps.
Can you adjust the drive belt tension
Answer Hello Mitch. There is no adjustment for the drive belt tension. Make sure the motor is moving freely on the floater plate. If needed, you can add grease to the floater plate for the motor to slide on. Hope this helps.
Where does motor spring go?
Answer Hello Rudy. The motor spring attaches to the motor and the floater plate. There is a slot on the motor for one end of it, and a hole in the plate for the other end. Hope this helps.
